Jeff Buckley Killing Time Lyrics

Last updated:

(The Creatures)
Originally performed by The Creatures. Jeff performed it live at Astoria, London, on January 18 1995.
I wait and wait
sleepwalk the hourglass
this way and that
the pendulum swings
yes there's plenty of time
always time left to kill
does time stand still
or hurtle on by?

let time unwind
let all the cogs fall out
let mans machines
collapse and rust
face down in the dust
i'll kiss no other lips
a life time of nothing
condemned without you

been so long here
i could die here
lying by your side
but time won't claim me
time and me only
i'm just killing time

if the sun went out
i wouldn't mind too much
who needs the days
to trouble to fill?
if the moon didn't rise
i wouldn't be upset
who needs moonshine
to cause tears to spill?

i've been so long here
i could lie here
under dying sky
this thirst and hunger
holds no wonder
i'm just killing time

i await your return
there's no other one
